Pilot Mountain, North Carolina

Helicopter Adventure Over West Maui and Molokai

October 24, 2014
Air Maui helicopter tour

Although Alan and I are big advocates of boots on the ground adventures to truly know a destination, there is also something special about seeing it from a seat in a small aircraft or helicopter. Take the Hawaiian Islands, for instance. Steep sea cliffs with thundering waterfalls are no match for our boomer hiking skills. That’s why, when […]

Exploring Coolidge Ghost Town in Southwest Montana

October 17, 2014
Donna Hull at Coolidge Ghost Town, Montana

On a cold, September day, the one-mile walk to Coolidge Ghost Town is sort of spooky. Trees crowd each side of the level trail that parallels a creek.

Fall on the Glenn Highway in Alaska

When Alan and I planned our Alaska Highway road trip, we weren’t thinking about fall color. But that’s exactly what we found in the first week of September while driving the Glenn Highway, also known as the Tok Cutoff. The paved road travels 328 scenic miles between Tok and Anchorage. And the portion of the highway […]
